Ultimate Karaoke Introduction

Searching for ‘Ultimate Karaoke’ will throw up lots of irrelevant information, should you google for this. Hence, we give this karaoke label an info and reviews page.

So, this information page aims to help future karaoke disc collectors decide whether to pursue these discs.

The company name is Direct Source Special Products Inc. That information is on the CDG, as is the country of origin. The CDGs say Made in Canada.

The other information on the label suggests that they come from the karaoke heydays of the early noughties (2000s).

Before we begin the review of this collection, we shall list the discs we know to exist. However, we have a songbook to accompany the series (see below).

Ultimate Karaoke Review

Ultimate Karaoke - UKA33872 Disc - Music Of Johnny Cash.

The splash screen starts slowly producing on-screen graphics, one line at a time, from the top of the screen. That reveals the name of the karaoke label together with the song title.

The backing music is reasonable, but that’s all. But remember, we only sample one or two.

We think the on-screen lyrics are a tad behind. While a good karaoke player can ‘correct’ that, we firmly believe the on-screen lyrics should advance slightly quicker. After all, the words act as a prompt in advance.

Lagging graphics are not generally a problem because most karaoke firms are close to the mark on this score anyway. Of course, if the singer knows the song, there is no problem once they catch the beat.

Although the CDGs look similar and bland, the sleeves have decent artwork.

Karaoke Song Sample

Although we may use numerous songs for the review, we only provide one sample video to represent the label. So, the song sample for our video presentation is UKA17402-04 – Kool & The Gang – Celebration.

Videos are subject to change!

Our Verdict

  • On-screen Lyrics: 3.5
  • Music Content: 3.5
  • Splash Screen, Graphics, Video: 3.5
  • Cover Art: 3.5
  • Overall Average: 3.5
  • Music And Lyrics Average: 3.5

We gave this collection 3 out of 5 in the rating system below because we rounded the score down in this case. You can also vote for these, even if you don’t have the discs or tracks. Indeed, all you need to do is watch our presentation video above and judge that.

Desirability Factor

We think these karaoke discs are mediocre at best. Because of that, we will not recommend spending too much time searching for them. After all, you need to balance their performance with the time it would take to find them. We are not saying to avoid these karaoke discs at all costs. But there are better alternatives that are readily available.

We can’t sample every track in this series, of course. Indeed, the karaoke songs that we tested may not represent the entire series!

To Sum Up

We couldn’t find any of these CDGs for sale on the internet in October 2014. That may be because the keywords ‘ultimate’ and ‘karaoke’ are common. Be that as it may, if you have any of these discs, please consider writing a review of them.

Likewise, if you know where these discs are for sale, let us know. There are karaoke disc collectors who have an interest in purchasing these discs. Remember also that collectors love to own ‘complete’ sets. So, if our list of discs is incomplete, let us know. If not, and you acquire the whole lot, collectors will pay handsomely for them!

Finding older karaoke discs is becoming increasingly challenging, especially those from the ‘karaoke boom years’. Of course, it will get significantly worse as time marches on. That becomes even more difficult when a set of karaoke discs is already rare.

The staff here at Karaoke Info think this collection of discs is mediocre, but we want your opinions. We also need more information about the makers, etc.

Songbook And Tracks

Of course, now that you have the information and reviews for this karaoke label, you need to know what songs are on the discs.

Indeed, we have the songbook for the Ultimate Karaoke series on the next page. It comes to you as a PDF file, and you can use it to cross-reference your collections or use it at your gigs, etc.

If you buy any of these discs because of our information and reviews, please call back and let us know.
